Tailgate Traditions: University of South Florida

I'm kicking off a new series here at Stylish Gameday entitled "Tailgate Traditions". The series is an opportunity for guest bloggers to highlight their school's tailgating rituals and traditions. Our first guest blogger is Kathy, from The Style Ref  - The Fashion Authority for Sports Fans. She is profiling her school, the University of South Florida.
